Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

2006 Chrysler sebring, horn randomly goes off either while vehicle engine is on or off....I took out the horn fuse and now have been driving unsafely without horn and apparently airbags. This vehicle has been in a few accidents and the air bags never went off.this needs to be recalled, there are many people with this problem, and not only are we driving around without a horn, but also no airbags. If I or anyone else gets injured in my car due to this matter there will be a lawsuit against Chrysler, and I am not the suing type, but I purchased this vehicle brand new and should have the ability to be safe and due to this issue, I cannot. What does it take for a recall....serious injury or death?

Sebring 4-cyl

  • 74,000 miles
Could not use my horn and airbag did not deploy during an accident. The airbag and horn do not work because the fuse had to be taken out the fuse runs these functions. The fuse was taken out because the horn does not function properly which also means the airbag has a fifty, fifty chance of working with the fuse in. Because no investigation has been done on this function everyone on the road is at risk. Safety is an issue and this needs to have a recall. Stop making americans pay for lemons!!!

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 33,000 miles


At first I thought it was my own inept use of the horn that I was not pressing it right, but the horn would not sound when warning other drivers of a dangerous situation so I didn't realize that the horn was actually defective. A car was traveling through a red light and I needed to sound my horn to warn on-coming traffic that there was danger and the horn would not go off and the accident happened right in front of me. Perhaps my horn may not have prevented the accident but it would have helped. The horn sometimes worked and sometimes didn't but I just thought that I was always pressing the wrong place on the steering wheel. Since May 1, 2013, my horn just decides to sound at any time. It seems to be making up for lost time!?! it not only causes me to pull over in heavy traffic but it makes other drivers pull over as well. People are looking for danger when there is none. It is a real problem and I know others with my make and model have been having the same problem. The Chrysler dealership said that the horn must be fixed for safety issues and requires the horn and airbag to be replaced (mega expensive). But, if they replace the horn with the same assembly, what prevents it from being defective again" is the air-bag part of the problem, if so, is it defective too" these are questions that the dealership will not answer. The part needs to be redesigned so that this issue does not pose a problem again after being fixed.

Horn goes off for no reason until fuse is pulled. Now that fuse is pulled I am driving around with no airbags. This has happened at least 4 times a week until I now go with the fuse out all the time. No safe driving around with out airbags!!!!! please issue a recall on whatever is causing this issue and putting thousands of people at risk. (number of people based on internet forums and complaints!)

Like many others, I had to pull the fuse for my horn, disabling my air bag because the horn kept going off. Why hasn't it been recalled?

Horn started going off by itself on my ride to work on a very cold morning. Has gone on several other times since while driving. Horn remains on for several minutes each time until I can safely pull to the side and hit the horn area of the stearing whel with a hammer to get it to turn off. This is a huge safety issue, the horn doesnt work properly when I need it to and it turns on on its own when I dont need it to cauzing a driving hazard for myself and other drivers on the road. From my research I have seen that pulling the fuse will also disable to airbag creating a double safety issue. This should absolutely be recalled by Chrysler as this appears to be a common safety issue in many of their makes, models and years.

Sebring 6-cyl

  • 78,000 miles
I was driving to work and the horn went off all by itself. I quickly pressed the horn in response and it went off. It has continued to do this and considerably gotten worse. It goes off even when the car is not started. When I remove the fuse it stops...however I cannot get it inspected for feel safe to drive with the fuse out.

problem #12

  • 60,000 miles
I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring that I purchased new and the horn goes off by itself all the time. It has gone off when I click the lock or unlock buttons on my keyless remote, when you open or close the door, driving down the road, starting or shutting off the vehicle, while sitting in the driveway. I can't seem to find anything in particular that will make it stop. After some investigating I have found this is a very common problem with the Sebrings and have discovered that it will cost approx. $1000 to fix it. The horn is attached to the airbag in the steering column, so the airbag has to be replaced. I have also discovered that if you pull the horn fuse, which most people are doing because they can't afford the repair, it will disable the air bag. So I feel this is a very bad safety issue. 1. the horn going off randomly and not working properly when needed. The horn has to be working properly before your car can pass the safety inspection 2. if people pull the horn fuse to stop it from going off then their air bag won't work, which isn't safe. I have found 27 complaints about this same problem on your webiste alone. Found numerous complaints on other websites. I feel that Chrysler should have to do a recall and fix this problem before someone gets hurt. I can't afford the $1000 so have pulled my horn fuse and am now driving without an airbag and horn. How safe is that?

  • 40,000 miles
We noticed at around 40,000 miles that the horn will just start honking by itself. If you drive down the street the horn honks. It does make for a very dangerous situation and should be recalled in my opinion. I don't know how many times I've almost been run over now because I can't use my horn. Only way to keep it from blowing whenever it wants to is to pull the fuse. Seems to happen more in colder weather, but have also been told that the problem also affects the airbags in the car.

problem #9

Sep 012010


  • 90,000 miles
I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring for the last couple of months I have been having issues with my horn. If I press the horn sometimes it won't work and if it does it will continue to blare without me even touching it. Recently it started to just go off by itself whether the car is on or off, or I'm in it or not. It will start blaring when I drive sometimes and no amount of pushing the horn pad will stop it, it will stop when it wants to. Sometimes when I am in my house I hear my car beep the horn a couple of times. This is a safety problem B/C this startles the driver and others around them, I believe this could cause an accident and if not could potentially make the wrong person mad and result in me getting hurt. This really concerns me and after doing much research I have found that there are many other people with the same problem and honestly Chrysler should have to fix this B/C its obviously not the consumers fault. Do people really have to die or something for this to be viewed as a problem and for someone to fix it? I really hope not and I really hope it gets resolved. We all pay enough money for our cars, we shouldn't have to pay more for a problem that we didn't create.
